Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver

Wow! This just in from the Los Angeles TimesArnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver are separating after twenty-five years of marriage and raising four children together! It’s not an official divorce yet but that’s probably coming down the pike sooner rather than later. I guess they decided to wait until after Arnold’s stint as Governor came to an end! I’ve never really been a big fan of his, but I actually think she’s terrific (she is a Kennedy after all), I’m a bit surprised by the news but the more I think about it, it’s not really shocking at all. Expect this breaking story to blow up over the next few days, it’s a big one!

Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife, Maria Shriver, have separated, with Shriver moving out of their Brentwood mansion while the two determine the next step in their 25-year marriage.

Shriver has been residing apart from the actor-turned-politician for the last few weeks. The former first couple confirmed the separation in a joint statement released Monday after questions were raised by The Times.

“This has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us,” the statement read. “After a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion and prayer, we came to this decision together. At this time, we are living apart while we work on the future of our relationship.

“We are continuing to parent our four children together. They are the light and the center of both of our lives.” We consider this a private matter and neither we nor any of our friends or family will have further comment. “We ask for compassion and respect from the media and the public.” READ MORE
